    I've heard of Pheasant Under Glass, but this was my first experience with pheasant through glass. We have two male ringneck pheasants one of which is a platinumn. We had to separate them initially because Phillipe was beating on Platinumn. But recently we had to renovate the digs in which we were keeping Platinumn and put him back where he was. We had recently expanded the coop and didn't seem to have any problems. But a few mornings ago we found a shattered window on our coop and the only missing bird was Platinumn. We had no choice but to assume that he was getting picked on so badly that he burst through plate glass to escape. Since then we have been spotting Platinumn dashing through the tall grasses on our farm. He had been raised in captivity his whole life so we don't know how well he will do in the wild so it's refreshing to see him every now and then around the house. But yeah, better than being pecked to death.
